Come as you are.
Could it be any other way?
And stop deceiving yourself
about who you are.
Ahh, that is hard to do.
You thought you were
the trouble you’ve been,
the choices you made, and
the desire to appear good at all cost.
It’s time to admit
you’ve told yourself so many lies
you came to believe they were true.
You were bound
in an illusion of the unreal and untrue,
a spell of your own doing.
At the end of yourself,
there was little that
wasn’t bored, worn thru, or exhausted.
the ultimate betrayal of a life that
never delivers on the promise.
But that was only your personality
doing the best it could,
knowing all the while
it could never be enough.
You allowed yourself to think,
“This time, it will be different.”
“This time, I will matter, and I will prevail.”
And you did matter to some and
prevailed more than most,
only to discover
after accomplishment, one holds ashes.
And when you could stand no more,
something caused you to look inward and upward.
You did not know,
but you were beholding
the true light of your soul
and the light beyond.
As the glorious light drew near
and revealed how little it cared
about who you thought you were
or what you had done.
It loved only you.
Oh, how amazing was this profound truth;
you are a soul cloaked in a body.
Your wondrous light patiently awaited
the moment when
your personality would surrender and say,
“I’ve gone as far as I can.”
“Won’t you take over now
and let me help as best I can?”
your body, soul, and mind
laugh at the silly, pointless things
that were once your reason for being.
From the old, a new life appears.
A new way of living, based on wisdom,
makes sense of the seemingly senseless.
A new purpose
greater than self-service and aggrandizement
raises the tide of your vibration
and those around you.
A new voice speaks words
once known but forgotten.
This eternal word reveals itself
to you once more
as the old becomes new
Your feet begin walking a new path
as hidden and mysterious as before
but full of faith and confidence
in where it leads.
A new joy inspires your journey.
The work has begun.
